Plastic Aggregate, Recycled Polypropylene (PP), Compressive Strength, Mix Proportion


today accumulation of solid wastes has been hazard to our society. Every year thousands of tonnes of solid waste or garbage which we refuse in our day to day life goes on accumulating in the dump sites near the cities which eventually gives rise to water pollution, air pollution and soil pollution. The purpose of our project is to study the suitability of non-biodegradable solid waste (NBDSW) product as replacement of material used in manufacturing of concrete by conducting various tests on concrete block hence casted by use of such materials. Which in turn will help to provide an eco-friendly & economical construction material. Effect of replacement of coarse aggregate by plastic aggregates has been studied by using various proportions The results obtained so, indicated that replacement of plastic aggregate as coarse aggregate increases some of the properties of concrete mix.
